Miss Caitlin is one of the sweetest girls I've had the privilege of meeting via the blog world. She is an incredibly talented painter, married to a rockstar, and mother to one adorable pup. I know you'll be inspired by her!
What is your job title ?
artist, clothes designer, right-brained day dreamer
What do you love most about yourself?
I love that I am creative! Being creative means that I get to find my own personal style, embrace "unique", and explore new ideas all the time. Not only is it fun, but I feel like it forces me to get to know myself better and learn to love that person... even though that is not always easy! :)
Who is your role model?
I have so many, I'll narrow it down to two. Creatively?... Joni Mitchell. Anybody else a Joni Mitchell fan? She was a poet, an artist, and an amazing song writer. It seemed as though she filtered every experienced in life and then reproduced that experience manifest by some artistic medium. On a personal level?... my great grandma, I called her grandma great. She was a hard worker and gave everything for her family, and she was also an artist and a creator. She made clothes from flour sacks and shoes from tires, she painted utah landscapes with beautiful colors. She was one tough lady, a legit repurposer, and a true artist!
What inspires you?
I feel inspired all the time! By people, experiences, trials, scenery, music... it all sums up to my personal experience, and I feel it is my duty as an artist to understand these experiences and share them through my art. I think we have all been molded by our roots and our circumstances, I feel most inspired by these simple things.
What are five words that describe you?
goofy, forgetful, kind, idealistic, dreamer,
What is your biggest insecurity?
I think my biggest insecurity would be letting myself or other people down. I am forgetful, I get lost in time easily, and I have too many things I want to do in life. I guess it feels daunting trying to accomplish everything I want to and still give of myself to others freely.
If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be?
an actress on broadway. I've never been gutsy enough to get on stage and sing, be expressive, dynamic, and let myself go completely. I feel very passionate about my art in my little corner of my garage studio, but I'd like to know what that feels like to be that passionate on stage.
